Plamen,
I tried this, but got an error: "The OLE DB provider 
"Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0" has not been registered."

Thank you very much for looking into this.

Looks like you do not have Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 on the machine, do you 
have 64 bit?

periods not importing

Can I only allow printing to pdf in Excel?
I have created a template in Excel which has been set up so that the layout is perfect when printing to pdf (which is how the document will mostly be used) but the layout changes if printing direct to our printer.

GUID/Outlook format link giving error "Unable to open the seleted folder or item"
Hi, I have created custom forms in multiple public Outlook folders and when I send the GUID type link to the user, they receive an error: "Unable to open the seleted folder or item". The same happens if I send the Outlook type link. However, if I ask the user to go to the folder and find the appropriate posting, then the form opens and after that the link works, too. Is this due to some Exchange server setting? My clients are not the type that tolerate opening the form the long way, they want a one click solution. Please help, this is driving my team crazy.

Excel 2003 Print Issue

Editable Excel Spreadsheet Online?
Hi, I tried to recent find information on this, but could find very little. How difficult would it be to host an excel spreadsheet online where visitors to the site can directly view and edit it?

I would like the users to be able to save the copy on the server. What would be involved in something like this?

Import Items from Quickbooks
Did anybody import items from QB? I would be specifically interested in how inventory is imported. Unfortunately there is no import template/mapping list available where I could choose which fields I want to import. I only would like to keep my descriptions, price, cost, vendor information, etc. in sync but NOT the inventory. After sales quantities cannot be sent back from RMS to QB I would worry that the inventory I have in QB (which is different to the inventory in RMS) will screw up the inventory in RMS during the load. Any comments will be greatly appreciated. Gerd ...
